Red Velvet's Joy is criticized for her performance on new tvN drama 'The Liar and His Lover'. 

The drama just recently aired its first episode on March 20. However, it garnered great attention even before the broadcast as it was Joy's very first drama. The fact that she's playing the female lead in her debut production also brought attention, as well as a  controversial discussion on idol actors.

As many assumed, Joy was quickly met with criticism after the drama finally aired. Many netizens are claiming that Joy is simply not good enough to take the lead. 

Netizens commented, "Her acting is definitely not good enough for the lead", "Honestly, she's so awkward", "Why do they use idols for the lead??? There are so many talented actors..", "I like Joy but her acting makes me cringe", "She sucks and so does Lee Hyun Woo.."

What are your thoughts on Joy's acting?

TBH, I like everything about this drama--including and ESPECIALLY Joy! :)

I was overwhelmed by the fact she got a lead role, despite being a beginner in acting- I knew this would happen. I hope people anticipate her acting's future although they seem to greatly despise her at the moment, please support our Sooyoung she has worked very hard to be working in the drama and rookie promotions.

Joy is perfect for the role. Period.

This drama isn't just for acting. It's for singing, too. Joy is perfect for the role in my opinion. She has good acting skills given The Liar and His Lover is her first ever drama. Riko (manga female protagonist) is a high school girl, bubbly, and has a sweet beautiful singing voice. As per WGM and other variety shows, Joy is bubbly, has a sweet beautiful singing voice, and can pass as a high schooler given that she just graduated high school and is just a year older than the character. You always say "she isn't good for a lead role character", "they should've casted an actress with experience", and so on and so forth. Well then, if you really don't like Joy portraying the character, and your really that good in criticizing idol-actresses negatively, can you please name one pure actress who is fit for the Soo Rim character perfectly? A pure actress with good acting experience, pretty, with a sweet beautiful singing voice, young looking enough to play a high school girl, and when standing beside Lee Hyun Woo they look perfect just by standing together. Come on, the director and the producers of this show aren't called Director and Producer for nothing.

I agree

The only other actress I know that could fit this role is Kim Sae Ron. But I love Joy's acting and LHW's too. If people have enough time to criticize the show, they shouldn't watch it.

All in all her acting wasn't that great. I feel there's no way that she beat out actual actresses. popularity I guess

I think that her acting is pretty good for a beginner. She has potential and she can hone her skills for the better if she continues on acting. I hope she doesn't get affected by the negative remarks that people have made.

I don't understand this at all. I've watched the original and I really enjoy Joy's acting. She's my 100% bias, but no matter how much I like someone if I can't stand a drama or someone's acting I stop watching. And I think she's doing really well. She's not up for an Oscar but I see a lot of potential and she's actually better than some of the actors in the show. I'm really enjoying it.

I don't get it why netizens are being so harsh with the so called "idol actors".. because when actors sings for their ost or dances on their fanmeet, netizens were all like "he/she is so talented".. but when idol does acting, netizens critized them with "its not fair", "she should've stick to singing"...idols are human too with dream, i don't its wrong to take big challenges when the oppurtunity is there.. Well its just my opinion though.. ✌

You are right. I don't blame her for trying.

baekhhyunee_love Thursday, March 23, 2017

Okay honestly if your an anti you would criticize her or if you look into her acting so much but she did a good job!! I mean first main character drama? that's a lot of pressure!!!!

I just watched the first episode and I thought she was really good considering she's new at acting! I get what everyone's saying about how they should've casted a pro actress but everyone starts off somewhere. For example, Park Shin Hye was a bit awkward in one of her early dramas, You're Beautiful (or was it just me? lol), but now she's a recognized actress that's played the main roles in so many successful dramas. Also, I think one of the reasons why she was casted for such a "big" drama was because of the personality she's shown in variety shows. I loved her bubbly character in WGM and other ppl might have too which makes it easier for them to see her character in that kind of light as well. So yeah, I guess what I'm trying to say is that we should just give her a chance in doing what she wants to do and see how she can become a better actress along the way :)

we waste time, is not like with music where you can have every singer you want out there, she took a role too big, so we miss the chance to watch another (probably better actress do it) we waste weeks waiting for this drama to end (so we have something decent to watch those days of the week) and we waste a great story, because the manga was great and they ruined it (is not like next year they will make a new cast to do it again) so we lost all chances of watching the story "live" at least with korean casting

I dont understand if MY mouth is dirty or yours, the other part I get it, anyway dont invoke Allah over something so little, I bet he has better things to do, but if I have to... "Astaghfirullah al-lathi laa ilaha illa huwa, al-Hayyul Qayyum wa atubu ilayh" X3... Happy now?

I think the reason why she was chosen is because she has a sweet singing voice like the manga character Riko is supposed to have and is known for. So in this case I think it was smarter for them to choose a girl who can actually sing well like Riko rather than a more experienced actress. I honestly think this girl is not even doing a bad job portraying Riko instead it's actually pretty good considering Riko's cute and outgoing personality.

Give her a chance she may improve; she like anyone else has to start from somewhere!! Granted it was a bit much to give her the starring lead role - second or supporting role would suit her starting out as an actress! But let's see where her talent takes her.....
